On a recent visit to Northern Ireland, former Chester City manager Ian Rush spoke about his time in the Deva Stadium hot seat.

Speaking to a Belfast newspaper reporter, Rush claimed his time with Chester City was ‘interesting’.

Rush took on his first and only managerial post to date at League Two side Chester City in 2005.

Despite keeping Chester in the football league, Rush resigned after the then chairman, Stephen Vaughan sacked his assistant, fellow welshman Mark Aizlewood. The Welshman told the Irish reporter that he would not want to repeat the experience of managing a football club at that level again.

Rushie said: “It was very interesting to be there, though I wouldn’t go in again at that level. Maybe I would at a different level.

‘It was all about learning the ropes and putting yourself in good stead for the future.’
